I’m writing this post as a briefing note because I’ve been working so much overtime lately that I forget how to write normally.
To inform you that VegFest 2015 will be held in June 2015 at the RA Centre and that we are establishing a committee to arrange speakers, cooking demos, kids’ area, etc.
The NCVA held the first Vegfest in 2009 at the Glebe Community Centre. We did the second, third and fourth one there too, in 2010, 2011 and 2012, respectively.
In 2013, the NCVA lacked the volunteer power to put on a fifth VegFest, so some outside organizers took it on and held a 2-day VegFest/YogaFest on the grounds of St. Paul’s University.
In 2014, the NCVA still didn’t have the volunteers power to put on a VegFest and we kind of thought the people who did it last year were doing it again, and it was all kind of confusing and it just didn’t happen and everyone felt kind of bad about it.
There bloody well will be a VegFest next year.
The fine gent who did the 2013 one will be the lead project manager, so it still won’t exactly be an NCVA event.
But the NCVA will have a big presence there. In addition to our table, we get to bring in speakers and basically do whatever we think would enhance the event.
In order for us to do these event-enhancing activities, we need to put together an organizing committee that is willing to develop and execute the activities.
If no one steps forward to be on the committee, the NCVA is not going to feel guilty if the 2015 event is a snore or if there isn’t one in 2016.
1) Volunteer to be on the committee by October 30, 2014. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
2) Serve on the committee from November 2014 to June 2015.
3) Make VegFest 2015 so awesome that you will be able to personally take credit for at least 100 instant conversions to veganism.
4) Collapse from exhaustion and start scheming to convince some other poor slob to take your place on the committee next year.
